Media Channel's Danny Schecter, the news dissector, deconstructs the media info-tainment spectacle through frank discussions with alternative and international media inside the "Green Zone". At risk to personal sanity, Danny dives into and interacts with the "Borg" comprised of individual delegates with a single, mind-numbing "deep text," till their censors go off and he is politely ejected -- into the maze of security cages that surround MSG and the heart of mid-town Manhattan.
Alchymedia's cameraman Chris Belcher also meets the faces of resistance, sometimes pepper-sprayed, often hand-cuffed, but always forcefully and creatively (and peacefully) demanding a return to the humane, democratic values promised by the Statue of Liberty.
Special thanks go to co-conspirators Brian Drolet, Chris Strohm, and for the other angle, Abu Socks. The following video is best viewed on a broadband (>250k) connection.
